This year marks William Shakespeare’s 451st birthday and the celebration goes from 12pm-4pm featuring jugglers and jesters, stage combat demonstrations, Elizabethan crafts, a scavenger hunt and more.

Check out child palatable five-minute versions of Shakespeare’s plays from the Nickel Shakespeare Girls, and enjoy musical performances by WETA Classical Players.  Also the DC Public Library brings its portable reading room to the Folger’s Elizabethan Garden where children will be read to by volunteers and can get library cards as well as check out books.

Get those pressing questions about Shakespeare answered by professionals and don’t forget to leave with cake!
